Steel Horses - Kingway's End

Title: Steel Horses Author: ElCapitan18 Game: Dragon Age Characters/Pairing: M!Adaar and Dorian Disclaimer: All recognizable content belongs to Bioware ~*~ Ozena Adaar Six months earlier… “Wait, I’m not done.” River’s sigh was long suffering as they leafed back a page and held the book open with their thumb. She could hear the unspoken, Maker’s breath , in their silence. Ozena supposed she couldn’t blame them. Things were just starting to get steamy and she was slowing down their pace to The Good Part with her slow and steady wins the race reading speed. She liked to savor the smut, sue her. She was sure that River’s sigh had nothing to do with how she’d climbed onto the back of the half elf’s bike, draped herself onto their back, propped her chin on their shoulder, and started reading along; out loud at first, until things had started to get good, then annoying River had taken a backseat to the story they were reading. She’d made jokes before when she’d read the title

He caught himself on his hands and glowered back at the door as it slammed shut behind him, chest rising and falling at a furious tempo as he grit his teeth and reined in his anger. If there was ever a time to keep his cool, it was now. “Amatus.” Focus snapping away from the door, panic flash froze his blood. There was a lone figure seated under the low hanging phosphorus bulb, which had been sent swinging by the slammed door and was now making the room’s shadows dance. Clothes better suited to an art journal than a fashion magazine were rumpled and torn. He looked like he’d been yanked from a runway and dragged behind a truck going 50 down inner city back roads. “Dorian.” He scrambled onto his feet

It caressed the forest floor, feeling the grass and fallen leaves, warming the soil with its radiance. The further they traveled the less leaves there were to obstruct the sun in her affection. Elevation thinned the forest and, even if they still had quite some distance to travel, it was clearer by the hour that soon the Frostback Mountains would overwhelm the surrounding forest with its might. Earth too

After their victory at the Temple of Mythal, Corypheus’s forces had started to pull back from the Wilds, but there were still stragglers lingering about.   As long as there were Venatori and Red Templars within the Arbor Wilds they were a threat to the Dalish that lived there. A promise had been made, and Cullen would see it kept.

When finally Delani looked her way, she asked, “Are you my real mamae?” A frown twisted Delani’s features for a moment, surprised by the question.

There were reports from the Arbor Wilds spread over the surface before him, maps and sightings of Corypheus’s forces all scattered along the desk as he sifted through the pages. The Inquisition was preparing to move and amass its forces within the wilds, every move they now made was important and could cost countless soldiers their lives, and yet he couldn’t focus on the necessar

The wind tousled her auburn hair and her hunter robes flapped with the breeze. She was something out of a painting and he wanted to imprint the image to his memory before he looked back to where Solas was standing behind him. The apostate’s gaze was also on Delani, his thoughts well hidden behind an expressionless mask. Looking to

Delani watched the specs of dust float in the air, careless as they were caught in the light. The bed shifted and heat pressed against her back, a strong arm winding around her waist and pulling her into her bed-mate’s protective embrace. Cullen kissed the round of Delani’s shoulder and Delani hummed in acknowledgment of his affection. “Morning, ma atishan,” h

It was odd to see them like that, so at ease and careless. While the two liked to pretend that they hadn’t a care in the world, it was hardly the case. Who they were out on the field and who they were back at Skyhold were two different people entirely.

By the pointed looks they were giving him one would think that he’d kicked a puppy.   His gaze landed on Delani and he clenched his teeth.

Cullen caught his daughter and spun with her once before tossing her onto her mattress in an unceremonious heap, where she then proceeded to roll around in a fit of giggles. He couldn’t wrangle the grin from his lips nor silence the chuckle rumbling in his chest if he tried. His daughter’s happiness was a contagion and he was throughly infected by her m

Her flawless skin was a warm, tawny color, evoking the memory of a summer sunrise chasing away what remained of the previous night’s chill. Her coloring reminded Cullen of caramel apples or toasted sweet rolls, delicious treats too sweet to bear, too precious to go unsavored. She was a beautiful coupling of blonde and auburn, tones of fire from raging to comforting. Still unmarked by this world, she was the embodiment of hope, she was manifestation of dreams

The second prayer she sent forth was to Elgar’nan, pleading the All-Father for vengeance upon the two irksome shemlan who had yet to stop their juvenile bickering since they had left Flemeth’s hut hours ago.

And there were many; horses, harts, dracolisks, and other exotic creatures of varying levels of intimidation. As many as she purchased or were gifted to her, there was one mount that she chose without fail. The others were pretty things that she liked to ride on occasion, but there was a single beast that she trusted whole heartedly and considered a friend. “Co

The cool temperature was companionable, and cicadas serenaded the moonlight. Her pale skin was like a beacon in the darkness. If Alistair put out that fire he was almost completely certain that Serai would give off enough light to see by.   “Well,” she leaned back against her bedroll and hugged her arms around her middle.

Her black brows were kitted together deeply with disgust and disappointment. Her mouth was twisted with outrage. The tiny woman had a fearsome mien about her that made him want to take several steps back.   He held her golden eyes in confusion.

For the sake of the inquisition, and all of those who fell under its banner, he had abandoned her to a fate that none could survive. Cullen grit his teeth, trying to suppress more than just the cold. So many had died already, and he’d allowed the Herald of Andraste to be counted among those numbers. Even as a small voice in the back of his mind insisted that there was nothing that he could have done, a larger part of him knew th

Without turning to look at the shemlan and watch him hurry up behind her, she rebuked, “That’s not my name, Commander.” The feeling of his fingers gently grazing her shoulder pulled her to a stop. Delani turned to face him then, a smile on her lips as she stared up at the tall human. His nose and cheeks were rosy from the cold, his eyes a brilliant golden color under

Skyhold was a fortress, it was a wonder, and it was exactly what they needed. There was room for everyone, for the soldiers, the scholars, the medics, and everyone in-between. There was so much to explore, and even more to do. Often times Delani would stand overwhelmed and undecided on whether she wanted to help unload the steady flow of in

Sleep had come with some difficulty the previous night, and what little sleep he’d gotten was restless and short lived. The lack of adequate rest left his muscles feeling sore, his body drained, and his temper especially short fused. Life would not wait for him and neither would his duties. So

Deciding to go visit the Grey Warden, she’d walked in on him working some wood into the shape of a griffon rocker. It was just something to keep the children busy, he’d told her, almost abashed by the admission, as if she could find the gesture anything less than heartbreakingly thoughtful. Ever since their conversation, she hadn’t been seen without a small hunk of wood in hand, carving knife picking a shape in

He’d gotten some sleep at least, not much but enough to get through the rest of the day. The nightmares had come again, not as bad as they typically were, but bad enough that the thought of going back to sleep made his stomach turn. Cullen was seated at his desk, going over everything that needed to be done by the end of the day. Skyhold was

The mage was rolling his shoulders, rubbing his neck, his face pinched by discomfort. Giving Delani a sidelong glance, he wondered, “You don’t happen to know if the Inquisition has a masseuse under our employ, do you?” Before Delani could answer Iron Bull stepped up behind him, his massive digits seeking out the knots in Dorian’s back. “If you’re

She’d thought that doing something she hated in a place that she loved would negate one another and leave her feeling neutral about the task. She’d been wrong.

Cullen had been so bold that day on the practice grounds, too bold it seemed. After their little sparring match Delani had wasted no time packing up and heading out to meet with Hawke’s contact in the Wardens.

My Bio

Hey there, stranger. Thanks for stopping by. My name's Rebecca and I'd love to show you around. Here we have the dumpster fire which is my life. And, to your left, you can see the cesspool which is my writing. Watch your feet, things are messy around these parts.

On the real, I'm a mid 20-something writing enthusiast with big city dreams of becoming a published author. While I skip down that yellow brick road toward unlikelihood, I work as a guest service agent at a resort. Sadly, there's not much else to know about me beyond that. I write and I work and, hopefully, someday something will come of either of those endeavors.

For the sake of divulging useless information, my favorite trope is the fake spouses that eventually fall in love cliche. I'm also a huge fan of platonic relationships, as my real life prospects at friendships is made up almost exclusively by cats.

At this point I'm just typing words for the sake of it, so I'll wrap this up with a vine quote: "Road work ahead? Yeah, I sure hope it does!" Thanks for stopping by this mess of a bio. I trust you can see yourself out.
